When we started our activities in the space market with a co-development project for Ariane 5 carrier rocket, our processes have been driven by functional reliability combined with weight optimized design. Projects have been realized in close cooperation with our customers and leading research institutes.

Franke Industries started the activities in Space





Franke Industries started the activities in Space in a Co-Development project with the predecessor organization of Arianegroup. The goal was to establish the Nozzle Extension connected to the AESTUS Engine Ariane 5 upper stage.


The solution was created on the application of a Cobalt-Based Alloy. Our Know-How in forming (rolling and expanding) combined with TIG welding, NonDestructive Testing and machining made the task to a successful story.


Special Acoustic Absorber in Aluminum were developed in close collaboration with RUAG Space and installed for a long period in the payload fairing Ariane 5.


Franke Industrie AG participates in R&D Projects with Arianegroup and Fraunhofer Institute: Special High Heat Resistant components for Space application.
